If you are lucky enough to have somebody who goes fishing in your family, then at some point, you'll need a rainbow trout recipe.
Trout is a very delicate flavored fish but is also oily (very good for your heart health) and so a little relish like this one, which is delicately flavored itself adds just the right amount of acid to cut through the oiliness.
Rainbow Trout with Red Onion and Orange Relish
1 − 1 1/3−pound rainbow trout, boned, cut in half lengthwise
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium orange
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
First, make the relish and allow it to rest for 30 minutes or so. Whilst you're waiting to cook the fish, you can prepare some boiled new potatoes and a lovely fresh salad or buttered vegetables of your choice (peas, french beans, broccoli etc)
Grate 1 teaspoon peel from orange. Cut off remaining peel including the white pith and discard.
Cut orange into 1/2−inch pieces. Mix orange pieces, peel and mint in small bowl.
Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium
heat. Add onion, then vinegar. Toss until just heated through, about
1 minute. Add onion mixture to orange mixture (do not clean skillet).
Season relish with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Sprinkle on all sides with cornmeal.
Heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in same skillet over medium−high heat.
Add fish and saute until crisp outside and just opaque in center, about 4 minutes per side.
Transfer fish to plates; top with relish.
